Tamar Braxton Drops Bouncy New Single ‘Pick Me Up’ [LISTEN]
After releasing the heartbreaking single, “My Man,” Tamar Braxton returns with an energetic new single, “Pick Me Up.”
The song is the perfect two-step jam with the R&B singer saluting her husband, Herbert Vincent, for fulfilling her life with love and affection. “You are my little pick me up whenever I’m feeling down / I don’t need no other drug, I got what I need right now,” she sings.
If you listen closely, the song also samples Evelyn "Champagne" King's classic 1982 hit, "Love Come Down."
"Pick Me Up" will appear on Tamar's next project called Bluebird of Happiness, which is being executive produced by Herbert and Rodney Jerkins. On Thursday (Sept. 14), Tamar went on her Instagram page to announce that Blue of Happiness will be her last album, which has sparked rumors that she is retiring.
Tamar has been singing professionally since the 1990s as a member of the Braxtons. In 2000, she embarked on a solo career with her self-titled album. With over 10 years in the music game, it's looks like she's going to put the mic and pursue other endeavors.
Tamar's final project will arrive on Sept. 29. If you pre-order the album, you can get "Pick Me Up" for free right now on iTunes.
